Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:
I have loaded a utf-8 encoded text into the buffer,
modified it, then tried to save it. Now emacs said the
These default coding systems were tried:
However, none of them safely encodes the target text.
Select one of the following safe coding systems:
utf-8 mule-utf-16-le mule-utf-16-be raw-text emacs-mule
After that, I have entered C-g to escape from this function.
At this point, my original file has gone (and, there is no
recovery file yet). Anyway, if I quit without saving, the
#filename# file's content isn't the same as the original (it
contains \201 bytes before non-ascii chars).
(Anyway, it is interesting why emacs does not recognize my
txt as utf-8 text, and interprets it as iso-latin-1-unix...)
Attached I send the file gzipped which was loaded into emacs.
emacs started with: 'emacs test'
a DEL C-x C-s C-g C-x C-c n n o RET ESC x r e p o TAB
r TAB RET
(If I would say 'yes' instead of 'no' at quit, emacs would generate a
'#test#' file where some bytes are preceded by \201 bytes.)
